1 Person, Biden Lies, the FBI and Voting
The United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) in Dobbs v. Jackson defied ‘Stare Decisis’ (precedent) when it overturned “Roe v. Wade.” (It ruled that the states had the power to legislate on abortion but not the federal government.) SCOTUS was willing to overturn the Roe v Wade precedent because, “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences.”
The same can be said for another Warren Court decision, Reynolds v. Sims, which waswrong, weak reasoned and created damaging consequences.
Reynolds v. Sims was a landmark case in which SCOTUS ruled that the electoral districts of both state legislative chambers must be roughly equal in population. Along with Baker v. Carr (1962) and Wesberry v. Sanders (1964), it was part of a series of Warren Court cases that applied the principle of "one person, one vote" to U.S. legislative bodies.
Reynolds v Sims is the reason the NY State Senate is based on population instead of mirroring the United States Senate where every state has equal representation.
The US Constitution protects minorities from the ‘Tyranny of the Majority’ by dividing the Legislative branch between one house where representation is based on population and another house which has equal representation for every state, no matter what the population. Or it did protect us before the Warren Court got ahold of it. Because of Reynolds v. Sims, upstate NY counties are subject to the Tyranny of the Majority in the NY Legislature.

We need to begin publicizing that ‘one person one vote’ should be reversed.
In his State of the Dis-Union speech, President Biden demanded the renewal of the Assault Weapons Ban. He and California’s Senator Dianne Feinstein sponsored it in 1994, and President Bill Clinton signed it into law. It banned the sale of Modern Sporting Rifles. That ban expired in 2004 and was not renewed because it was widely recognized as ineffective.
The semiautomatic rifle has since become the most-popular selling centerfire rifle in America – with over 24.4 million in circulation today.
The Heller, McDonald, and Bruen decisions of the Supreme Court made it clear that any such ban as Biden is proposing is unconstitutional.
In last year’s dis-union speech, Biden also wanted Congress to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). He said, “Repeal the liability shield that makes gun manufacturers the only industry in America that can’t be sued, the only one.”
Gun manufacturers do have legal protections from being held liable for injuries caused by criminal misuse of their weapons, thanks to the PLCAA. But they are not exempt or immune from being sued, as Biden said. Their protections aren’t dissimilar to protections for pharmaceuticals and medical device manufacturers.
How can you tell that Joe Biden is lying? His lips are moving.
The text of an internal FBI guidance document was leaked by an FBI whistleblower and subsequently published by Kyle Seraphin, who had been a special agent at the bureau for six years. It links traditional Catholicism such as the Latin Mass with violent extremism, as a basis for the FBI to investigate those Catholics. Per Seraphin, the document contained an unsubstantiated assumption that “a preference for the Catholic Mass in Latin instead of the vernacular and a number of more traditional views on other world religions can amount to an ‘adherence to anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ and white supremacist ideology.’”
After this information saw the light-of-day, the FBI pulled the document and issued a statement: “While our standard practice is to not comment on specific intelligence products, this particular field office product — disseminated only within the FBI — regarding racially or ethnically motivated violent extremism does not meet the exacting standards of the FBI.”
The last six years have given us a pretty good idea of what are the FBI’s ‘exacting standards’.
The FBI statement continued: “The FBI is committed to sound analytic tradecraft and to investigating and preventing acts of violence and other crimes while upholding the constitutional rights of all Americans and will never conduct investigative activities or open an investigation based solely on First Amendment protected activity.”
Oh yeah. Then how come ‘sound analytic tradecraft’ relied heavily on analysis from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which is a far-left organization.
According to former Attorney General Jeff Session, the SPLC has used the “hate group” designation as a weapon and has “wielded it against conservative organizations that refuse to accept their orthodoxy and choose instead to speak their conscience…They use it to bully and intimidate groups..”
On Tucker Carlson Tonight, Kyle Seraphin asserted that the FBI is “so desperate to find white supremacists that they are going to look at the Catholic Church.”
“They have found a gateway in what they think is fringe Catholicism in order to move into Christians in general and to declare them to be the actual criminals in this country or the potential terrorists.”
Last year, on the Dan Bongino show, Seraphin asserted that the Biden regime has more “demand for white supremacy” than “supply of white supremacy,” which forces the police state to invent cases.
We know that the left wants to ‘disarm’ their opponents, based on the left’s actions against the 1st and 2nd Amendments. Does the left fear that an organized religion (like Catholicism) has the potential to move against the abortion and LGBTQ movements. Was this the left’s attempt to intimidate and silence them, before they could act?
Think your vote doesn’t count?
According to Ballotpedia, one hundred and three (103) state legislative elections were decided by 100 votes or fewer in 2022, three times more than in 2020.
In 2022, 103 elections represented 1.6% of the 6,278 seats up for election.
In 2020, 30 elections represented 0.5% of the 5,875 seats up for election.
Democrats won 49 of those 103 races (48%), Republicans won 52 (50%), and an independent won one (1%). An additional race in New Hampshire ended in a tie with a redo election scheduled for February 21st.
